Hi Richard,
Please open a case and send me the number so that I can work with engineering to understand the possibility of implementing it on our platform.

ME3600X does send out traps.

Correct. But receiving traps means monitoring that traps are received
and processed, sending test traps, etc. This is why we don't use traps
for anything.

Polling means we _know_ the data is current. If there's no data when
polling, a general alarm can be raised.

To put it another way, polling is more expensive than catching traps,
but more reliable.


PS: Can you log a request to add the data for missing PSU as well.
I.e. to make ME3600x act like C6500 in this regard. Or should I do
that via TAC?
